O'Sullivan's Monday NBA Picks: Knicks at Sixers, Hawks at Warriors & Jimmy Butler, Nikola Jokic prop parlay

New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers, 7 pm Eastern, Atlanta Hawks at Golden State Warriors, 10 pm Eastern. Player Prop Parlay: Jimmy Butler over 15 points w/Nikola Jokic over 4 assists.

After the public humiliation (some might say “gentle suggestion” but that would be a euphemism) from my editor, I’ll begin issuing the “Standing Caveat” below. However, as far as my own picks are concerned, I will strive not to change wagers based on capricious events, and in the rare instance I do, I will be certain to inform you in my column the following day. I trust that at this point, I’ve earned your trust, if only concerning my integrity and not my gambling acumen.

Seattle O’Sullivan 2021-2022 NBA Season so far: 41-55–2, -$239.92

(Standing Caveat: The universe is chaotic. Life is unpredictable. Things happen. Like injuries, for instance. In following Seattle O’Sullivan’s betting advice, be advised that you should always monitor your bets during the day to make certain unforeseen things have not occurred which might change your wagering opinion. Thank you.)

New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: Philadelphia -186, bet $14.88 to win $8; Philadelphia -4.5 (-110), bet $7.60 to win $6.91

Forget this pick!

Philadelphia is 9-1 against New York in their last ten matchups. The Knicks have lost nine in a row in Philadelphia. The Sixers are hot right now: 8-2 overall, 6-0 as a favorite, 7-3 against the spread. They are better than the Knicks in virtually every statistical category. Tobias Harris and Matisse Thybulle are out tonight but I think guard Seth Curry and center Joel Embiid are on a mission. Could it be the Ben Simmons nonsense actually helps make Embiid and company the best team in the Eastern Conference?

Player Prop Parlay: Jimmy Butler over 15 points w/Nikola Jokic over 4 assists, true price -242, bet $7.60 to win $3.15

An underrated heavyweight matchup, and I’ll put a little down to see if the two stars facing each other can have their typical stat-stuffing game.

Atlanta Hawks at Golden State Warriors, 10 pm Eastern

The Pick: Golden State -158, bet $7.60 to win $4.81

Golden State is 8-1, yes, but this is more about Atlanta being tired after a West-Coast road trip. The Hawks are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven, 0-8 ATS on the road in their last eight, and the Warriors outscore them by more than six points per game. Trae Young is a rising superstar but still tries to do too much occasionally. Stephen Curry is a superstar who’s playing at home.
